The Nitty Gritty:
I am a poor kid, I do not have hundreds of dollars to create and pay for the setups of which I so deeply desire. So to benefit you and I and everyone else involved in this shoot each model/mua/hair stylist/wd specialist selected from the casting call will need to bring $100.00 each. This cost will not be paying me the photographer it will go towards the entire cost of the shoot (studio rental/equipment, wardrobe, makeup, setup/props and anything else we need to make this shoot not look cheap.) I'm looking to go big with this one...stuff Spokane has never seen before. I too will be putting money into the pot to fund this shoot. This is not your typical Spokane photo shoot. I plan to put my little foot in the big fashion/glam industry with these photos. If you have a problem with helping with cost then move on to the next CC.
I want to portray a series spread depicting seriously controversial topics. These shots will push the boundaries of scandalism so be open minded. If your wondering what kind of inspiration I'm going off of please refer to google and search "David LaChapelle". I dont necessarily want to copy his work, I just want the models to be aware of the explicit nature of the photos I'm looking to shoot. I'm not looking to shoot your goodies but I do want a lot of skin...lots and lots of skin. So please be open minded and comfortable in the skin your in.
I, along with some help will be building scenes to shoot you in (paid by the entire group). In each scene will be whatever we can come up with at thrift stores and the like and recreate the items/materials in the manner of which desired by the group joint ideas. We will schedule a group brain-storming session so we can include everyone's ideas and creativity into these shots and so that the entire group is present and aware of what they are getting themselves into. :o) The entire process will most likely take about a month to complete.
When all of the sets are complete and ready for shooting. Hair and Makeup is going to be intense. I have purchased a body-airbrushing kit to make the post processing work in photo shop easier and to make you look the best you can. Each model shot will be me meticulously posed, there will be no rush while shooting so make sure when the date has been set for your shoot that you have the entire day available.

I am very interested, though not quite up for the explicit nature you plan on taking. Will you be taking any less graphic pictures? It sounds amazing. Thanks! =D
